In a community bursting at the seams with Mexican eateries, this inexpensive under-the-radar restaurant is one of my very favorites. If you’re a gringo, you’ll probably be alone at Julia’s among a crowd of loyal Mexican customers. They come for authentic comida de la casa (home cooking): stewed chicken with potatoes and vegetables, fiery camarones a la diabla, cheap tacos, massive chile rellenos and soul-satisfying posole and menudo. No one spent much time on the décor at Julia’s, but you’ll swear the minute you enter the restaurant that you’ve been transported straight to Mexico. Don’t bother flashing your Gold Card here, though; Julia’s is a cash-only operation.
